The Carnival of Blotting is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Godmother with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 15.291 billion Blotts live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Administration and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Masque of the Red Death. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Blottish economy, worth a remarkable 2,668 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 174,509 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Blottish Embarrassments, Air Blotting is rumored to receive more government funding than the Blottish Air Force, it's said that any enemy of democracy is a friend to The Godmother, and government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Blotting's national animal is the seagull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Blotting is ranked 203rd in the world and 2nd in The Communist Bloc for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 59,336.53 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
